Re: how to permanently monitor a directoryby BrowserUk (Pope)

If your running Win32 then Win32::ChangeNotify makes this very easy.
You'll need control-break rather than ^C to interupt this script.
To extending this to monitor the whole subtree, change the 0 in the new() call to 1, though you'll need some extra work to find out what changed where.
I'm not aware of a similar mechanism under *nix.

If I understand your problem, I can solve it! Of course, the same can be said for you.
